For some reason the French don't do vegetarian. This restaurant had no vegetarian option at all. Luckily our veggie eats some fish, but when it came, oooh dear! We all like a little fine dining, but this place just doesn't do it right. Thinking that tuna salad was a safe bet, we didn't realise that it was going to be... More

Regional specialties, with an emphasis on fish, beautifully prepared in an attractive space. The clientele seemed like trendy couples (except for us, of course), and the place was lively but still pleasantly calm, if that makes sense. The staff seemed jolly and energetic and seemed to enjoy helping us to have a lovely and memorable meal.

The menu is interesting but a lack of attention to detail lets this restaurant down. We went on Saturday evening, 11th July, and although the restaurant was only half full the service was pedestrian. We were seated at the back of the restaurant on the upper level and when the air conditioning kicked in all around were cold. Having asked... More

We had lunch in this interesting setting on a week day and the place was not that busy. The decor is well worth it, the restaurant seems to have been built by knocking down walls from several adjoining tall houses, now all done up and spacious looking. Looks like Flemish style but I am not an expert! We were made... More

We had a short break in Lille and liked this restaurant so much we went twice. The food is excellent, the restaurant is really charming - lots of bare brick, and nice ambience, Would recommend it.

I highly recommend this place to those visiting Lille. It is a good match of cosy atmosphere, competent and friendly service and tasty food. Here you can try typical dishes from the North of France or just order a plate of pasta. Both will be delicious!

Wanted a nice traditional french restaurant for my husbands birthday. Booked this online and we were not disappointed. A couple of minutes walk from the centre this restaurant was welcoming. Started with cocktails then delicious starters and mains a good bottle of chardonnay and brandies to follow all for €115. Stunning food mainly locals eating but they must know it's... More
